be here that we decided this weekend to also require the americas cup to celebrate -- to require the san francisco giants to have a play off game, the 49ers to play this weekend, the blue grass festival to be here, the parade, as well as the castro sea fair to coincide and welcome you in style. but i wanted to say a few words about the one thing that keeps me up as the head of the legislative body here in san francisco. the reason why i sit with many of our first responders on our city's disaster council, the reason why a few years ago chief white and i led almost a half a billion dollar bond campaign to rebuild the water, fire, and police infrastructure. about every six months i literally wake up in the middle of the night thinking about what would happen if a disaster struck our city. and i think about this and i think i have these nightmares really for three reasons. one, everyone who lives in san francisco knows that in 1906 we were hit not just by an earthquake, but by an earthquake that led to a fire that burned down literally every single neighborhood in the district that i curren
of you, i love books and i am thrilled to be part of this. well, let me start with a portrait of america. i call it a portrait to make it clear from the start that i have absolutely no aesthetic sense whatsoever. but this is a sort of a portrait. i have split these things into 10 things, on the basis of density levels. at the heart, cities by the absence of physical space between people. cities have proximity, density, closeness. the bottom line shows the relationship between density and income. as you can see, they earn on average on a per capita basis, 50% more than those living in the least dense half of america's county. this is a common phenomenon throughout the world. the three largest metropolitan areas in this country produce 18% of our nation's gdp. almost a fifth. while including only 13% of america's population. the topline shows something that may be more surprising. it is the relationship between population growth between the year 2000 and 2010 an initial population density. as you can see, population growth goes up at the start of the 19th century. we were leaving our encla

when i was combining the army and the navy medical forces between walter reed and bethesda. america's army is an amazingly heroic army. they have occupied valley forge , tokyo, berlin, danang and now it occupies bethesda, maryland, but we're working through that. how do we break those cultural barriers, how do we figure out supporting supporters, how do we do that before the next capacity goes on? so what have we done, what capabilities do we bring, where do we use them and how will they be playing a role here in the event of the most likely nightmare scenarios for this area? i grew up in the bay area, i have tremendous affection for it. i did train on the east coast but i grew up in santa clara and in napa, i used to come down and watch candlestick park, my dad would bring me down, i would watch the 49ers play and i have great pride in the amount of collaboration and cooperation you are showing to figure out what the next nightmare scenario might be and be ready for it. it's probably going to be either an earthquake, it may be a man-made catastrophe such as an heinous terrorist
